The latest news about Simbu or STR is that he will be seen playing Billa in Billa 3. Simbu has always been a great Thala Ajith fan and now he will be seen in a role that Ajith has done earlier – but with a difference.

Actress Akshara Gowda has been signed on for Nayanthara’s role and the team will reportedly be shooting the teaser on July 28.

A source close to the developments tells NewsX that the movie will roll from October and will be shot completely in Mumbai and the United States. Simbu will be seen as a don who is quirky and psychotic in the movie. The movie is said to be an out-and-out action entertainer with some romance thrown in.

It was Superstar Rajinikanth who starred in Billa and Thala Ajith then stepped into his shoes in the modern version. Now, it is Simbu’s turn to reprise this role. This should hopefully be a treat for his fans.
